Carolina Sauces online store recently added two new hot sauce gift boxes specifically for serious chileheads.
Before I get into specifics, however, a word of warning is warranted: The hot sauces in these gift boxes are HOT. Not Tabasco or Frank's Red Hot hot, not jalapeno pepper hot, and no, not habanero hot, either. We're talking burn-your-tastebuds-off hot, "keep out of reach of children" hot, handle-with-care and a-toothpick-drop-is-enough hot. In fact, some walk-in stores make you sign liability waivers and ask for ID (you must be 18 or older) before letting you buy some of these ultra-hot hot sauces. That being said, let's get down to details.
The "No Survivors" Gift Box was an extremely popular hot sauce gift with military personnel back when we ran Operation Sauce Drop, a donation-supported non-profit program that sent free gift boxes of hot sauce and BBQ sauce to servicemen and women stationed abroad. Unfortunately we had to discontinue that program last year when we closed our Durham warehouse, and back then we also didn't offer the No Survivors Hot Sauce Gift Box for purchase through our online store. Well, the good news is that as of this month, we can now sell the No Survivors Gift Box on the Carolina Sauces site! This intimidating gift box comes with a full-size (5 oz) bottle each of the following extreme hot sauces: The original Dave's Insanity Sauce, Marie Sharp's Fiery Habanero Pepper Sauce, Endorphin Rush, and Mad Dog Inferno. If, by chance, one of those sauces happens to be out of stock when you order this gift box, our warehouse will substitute a different super-hot hot sauce of comparable heat and value.
The second ultra-hot gift box is the brand-new Ghost Pepper Hot Sauces Gift Box, packed with a full-size (5 oz) bottle of each of the following ridiculously hot hot sauces that feature the Ghost Pepper, aka naga jolokia or bhut jolokia pepper, widely recognized as the hottest hot pepper on the planet in terms of its consistently blazing-hot heat: Dave's Gourmet Ghost Pepper Naga Jolokia Hot Sauce, Blair's Pure Death with Jolokia Hot Sauce (this one comes with Blair's infamous Skull Keychain hanging from the top), Mad Dog .357 Pure Ghost Hot Sauce, and The Ghost Hot Sauce.
Both of these hot sauce gift boxes make great birthday gifts, Christmas or other holiday gifts--and they're currently on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, too!
